1. My younger brother [Chris, 30] and I share the same birthday, ­Feb. 27.

2. I am double-jointed and can bend my fingers all the way back.

3. I hate shopping.

4. I love coffee as much as I hate shopping.

5. I love magic and as a teen auditioned for the Magic Castle nightclub. But my magic coins fell on the ground.

6. My dream duet partner is Björk.

7. I will eat around every caper on every dish for the rest of my life.

8. When I was younger, I wanted to be a veterinarian and live on a farm.

9. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved to play tennis. I try to play three to four times a week.

10. Halloween and New Year’s Eve both depress the hell out of me for some reason.

11. I don’t know how to tie a tie. It’s embarrassing.

12. One of the most treasured items in my home is a book signed for me by Nelson Mandela.

13. My goal is to take the time to do a Broadway show in the next few years.

14. I love wine and will drive to Napa, California, to get a case of Cabernet and the hiccups.

15. I have always wanted a tree house in my backyard.

16. I only like to cook with a partner or else I eat all the ingredients.

17. I walk to every stage with mint or chamomile tea and make sure to take a big gulp before starting the show.

24. I’m weak in the knees for dried mango.
